Hi Jen,

The code you have is fine. But the task also asks you to change the colour of the text (to any colour you like, like the background colour).

Hope that helps,


Also I have noticed that on some of the challenges it doesn't always recognize short hand. There was one that I had to specify

#myID {
background-color: #fff  

It would not accept for some reason

#myID {
background: #fff

Just a thought.

That's true, sometimes there are cases like that.

Shouldn't be an issue here, though. I tried this task before and it passed with the shorthand:

background: #fff;

All the best,


Good Deal :)
